You can deal with eye floaters by moving them away from your field of vision looking up and down then side to side. However, if they become a serious problem you can go for a procedure known as vitrectomy. www.webmd.com/eye-health/benign-eye-floaters?page=2.
Your Doc is right. I have them too and I try not to look at anything that's all one color like white. Reading is hard too. Try not to concentrate on them. It's hard, but that's really all you can do. Sorry.
